First I had a daughter, then 5 years later, I had a son. As far as hand-me-down clothes from my girl to my boy, it’s almost non-existent. However, every now and then, I’d look inside my box of “keepers” and see if there’s anything my son can wear. Sometimes there might be a t-shirt or overalls. This time… success! I found shoes! The sneakers he’s wearing were my daughter’s, and Mommy happens to have a matching pair! So for few months, my daughter and I shared the experience of wearing our identical shoes together around town, loving the attention we got from other people. Now, my son and I can wear identical shoes too and bask in the attention as well. I love making memories like that!

Mother’s Day is around the corner on May 13, 2012 – actually the day after my wedding! I have been racking my brain for cute gifts for all of the kids to make the mother’s on the wedding weekend. I think this one is super cute, and what mom doesn’t need a little alone time in the bathroom?

If it’s a long soak in a hot bath that you crave, may we suggest this bathroom-door sign? It bears interchangeable messages that gently let your family know when you’re in need of some quiet/alone time.

This easy felt pillow requires not a stitch of sewing, so Mom will be relaxing among the bubbles in no time.

TOOLS:

  • Felt
  • Pinking shears
  • Fabric glue
  • Ribbon
  • Fiberfill, cotton balls or tissue
  • 3- by 5-inch index cards

INSTRUCTIONS:

  1. Cut two 9- by 7-inch rectangles of pink felt and one 4- by 6-inch rectangle of green felt. Trim the edges of the felt with pinking shears, if you like, then cut a 2 – by 4 -inch window in the green felt.
  2. Apply fabric glue along the 2 short sides of one of the pink felt pieces, then lay a 30-inch length of colorful ribbon atop the glue lines for a hanger, as shown. Apply more glue along all the edges of the felt, as shown, leaving a 2-inch space at the center of the bottom edge (for adding the stuffing). Set the second piece of pink felt atop the first, pressing it in place. To add the window, apply fabric glue along the sides and bottom of the green felt piece and glue it to the center of the top piece of pink felt. Allow all of the glue to dry completely.
  3. Stuff the pillow with fiberfill, cotton balls, or tissues (don’t overstuff it or the notes won’t lie flat), then seal the hole with more fabric glue and   let it dry. Finally, write a few bathtime messages (such as “Mom’s  Relaxation Zone” or “Ma’s Spa, 7 to 8 p.m.”) on 3- by 5-inch index cards for Mom to display.
